I can read, just an attempt to influence Wisconsin into considering NAS as it relates to both his present and future needs.

When the rate of sampling is lowered, the file size can be reduced at the expense of lower quality sound. MP-3 files often delete as much as 90 percent of the data of the original music file.

One day down the road, many moons from now, Wisconsin may have wished that his music files were high resolution. Terabyte dual raid NAS is relatively inexpensive and i'm certain that somewhere there is a Santa Claus.

oh, i agree, what with the low cost of drives, it doesn't make any sense to not go with the highest audio quality available; however, sometimes it's perfectly reasonable to have both (lo & hi quality) for the same source, depending on one's media player, device, etc.
